Your one-day rafting adventure starts at our Peach Springs staging location at 8 a.m. From there, you’ll hop on a bus to the Colorado River and enjoy beautiful scenery along the way. Then, you’ll climb into your raft and begin your journey over 12 miles of whitewater rapids (safe for beginners, but sure to guarantee a thrill). Next comes Travertine Cavern Falls, where you’ll enjoy a moderate hike to the cavern and natural waterfall, followed by lunch along the riverbank. After lunch, you’ll enjoy a smooth water ride through the Canyon. Throughout the trip, your experienced guide will share stories about the history and culture of the Hualapai people. Your adventure ends with a helicopter flight from the river to the rim of Grand Canyon West, where for a small additional fee, you can tour the Skywalk and our other viewpoints. Ground transportation will return you to Peach Springs in time for dinner. Children must be ages 8 or older to participate in our one-day rafting tour.
